Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mauro Giuliani was the musician who most indelibly marked the history of the guitar. After his first years in Bisceglie, Barletta and Trieste (a period about which we do not have much information), in 1806 he moved to Vienna, instantly and fully integrating in the prestigious musical circles of the city. He was an esteemed friend, among others, of Beethoven, Haydn and almost certainly Schubert, and a partner in the concert performances of virtuosos such as Hummel, Moscheles and Mayseder. He was the first to create a repertoire that not only was quite considerable for its quality and quantity, but also, unprecedentedly, became a settled part of the concert practice of contemporary musicians and was transmitted to posterity, down to our time. Read more The programme presented in this release by Davide Ficco and Rossana Bertini, great artists, and sensitive to the historically acknowledged performing style, deals with two musical genres to which Giuliani devoted his greatest efforts: vocal chamber music, and, to a greater degree, the solo guitar repertoire.
